york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: tonight our focus is on what can be done so that the tragedy at sandy hook elementary school does not happen again. on friday december 14th a gunman killed 26 people, 20 of them were children between the ages of 6 and 7. it is the second deadliest mass shooting in american history. the killings have revived the debate on gun control and demonstrated the need to rethink our approach to mental illness. president obama traveled to the bereaved town to attend a community vigil and console families. here is a part of the president's address to the grieving people of that town, and to the nation. >> no single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society but that can't an excuse for inaction. surely we did:do better than this. if there's even one step we can take to save another child or another parent or another town, from the grief that's visited tucson, aurora, and oak creek and newtown, and communities from columbine to blacksberg before that, then surely we have an obligation to try. >> rose: jo

end today. that statement from michael bloomberg, mayor of new york city. let's turn to dan gross, president of the bred campaign to prevent gun violence, and also congressman jerrold nadler of new york. gentlemen, thank you for your time tonight. we have experienced a wide range of emotions today. this is absolutely as bad as it could possibly get. who could fathom something like this could happen? but mr. gross, could this change anything? could this horrific event really be a moment in american history where we actually do something about gun violence? >> i really believe it will change things. you know, there has been a national conversation that has been starting prior to. this we've seen people coming out, people like bob costas, even rupert murdoch, mill o'reilly talking about sensible measures. the american people want to solve this problem. sometimes it's takes an event like this to catalyze thing. in 1989 there was a horrible school shooting where 35 people were shot in stockton, california. that was a cat liss soon after that. we need to push, and it requires the americ

city, michael bloomberg. mr. mayor, thank you for being here. i wish it weren't under these circumstances. >> just tragedy. terrible. >> you have been an unspoken gun control advocate for many years. never more so than this morning. and we'll talk about that. first, "the new york post," the morning after the slaughter of innocents. describe your reaction when you saw this unfold. >> it's so unbelievable. and it only happens in america. and it happens again and again. there was another shooting yesterday. three people killed in a hospital. we kill people in schools. we kill them in hospitals. we kill them in religious organizations. we kill them when they're young. we kill them when they're old. and we've just got to stop this. >> there is in this country incredible sadness, empathy, anger, and a sense of resolve. and the president speaking after this horrible tragedy really gave voice to that friday afternoon. listen. >> we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. >> a significant stat
in new york city, the golden strip, michael eric dyson, host of nbc, melissa harris perry from the nation, and ari melbourne, columnist for the washington post and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. this is, unfortunately, something that is tha has happened a number of times this year. an ongoing national nightmare, these shootings that take place. i guess my first question is an unfolding situation. certainly we are getting more details there. there may be more bodies in the school. we don't know yet. melissa, i go to you first as a mother when you hear about this, and, you know, the ages of these children here. we're talking about an elementary school. it is a moment, obviously, for self-reflection, but also a sense that when is enough going to be enough in terms of violence in this country? >> we have to be careful because this is an unfolding event. we don't know what all the stories are, but essential as a parent -- but not just as a parent. for every one of us who sends, you know, our mom off for the day or our spouse off or our kids, you know, this idea that we live in such a con
to staff because his mother is a teacher. >> exactly. when i worked at the new york city schools after 9/11, we needed to take a very wholistic approach to this as we move forward and think of the needs of the children, this community, the teachers. this is going to be a long process of healing. there will be all kinds of great resources for people in terms of how do you talk with your children, how you move forward, how you answer their questions. certainly the school district will have to look for additional resources. joan and i were just talking about this. i hope nobody says that the school doesn't deserve whatever it is that they need to make sure there are counselors available so everyone can move forward and, you know, across this country children are going to have questions and parents are going to have to figure out how to talk with their children about what's happened. when children see something like this, they experience it very differently than we do as adults. keeping an eye on your children, if they have questions, responding to those questions but having that wholistic a
into that type, ted bund city a classic. and these are people who are not mentally ill. they know exactly what they're doing. they're very capable. they're not out of reality. they just have no empathy for other people. they don't care. and with sadistic psychopaths, they actually enjoy inflicting pain on others. they're doing it because they want to, and they want to do this horrific thing. we have those two. believe it or not, the other turns out to be suicidally depressed people. and they're angrily depressives. we don't normally equate anger with depression. psychologists talk about depression as anger turned inward. so you're beating up on yourself. you're presenting outwardly you're this morose beaten down person because you've been beating yourself up. but sometimes in a small number of cases when you turn that outward, then we have something like this. and most often when a deeply depressed, angry person does that, he will normally inflict it either just on himself, he'll commit suicide. the next wider thing is he will attack the person he feels to blame. so if it's his parents, his gi
of the national rifle association, and new york city michael bloomberg standing with victims of gun violence, there is one issue to confront -- access to guns. >> this is just ridiculous. this is an outrage. we are killing each other. and we're the only industrialized country in the world doing it. >> reporter: proposals being pushed in congress include reinstating the ban on certain types of semiautomatic rifles, which expired in 2004. and banning high capacity magazines. even some gun stalwarts such as west virginia democratic senator joe manchin sounded a bit more compromising. >> i don't know anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle. i don't know anybody that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting. >> reporter: white house officials say the president does not only view this tragedy through the lens of access to guns, but education and a violent popular culture. while the president has occasionally talked about gun control -- >> weapons that were designed for soldiers in war theaters don't belong on the streets. >> reporter: action is a different matter
speakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakakak nobody knows disasters like comedians. >> new york, the high-tech resilient city. just don't get us wet. what the hell was that? >> that's from my upcoming benefit for victims of hurricane sandy. i booked the strongest, smartest comics i could find. my comedian friends and i will raise money to rebuild homes and lives one laugh at a time. >> awe damn, the lights are out! you know what? i'll watch a little television until they come back on. >> only on current tv. >> eliot: on the 18 -- only 18 days remain until we go over the so-called fiscal cliff and with congress once again heading home after another grueling two-day work week, president obama met once again with speaker boehner. while the president keeps talking about revenues, speaker boehner focuses on expenditures and it is hard to tell if any progress is being made. the main sticking point remains over the issue of tax rates for the wealthy. but according to a recent poll, 76% of the country including 61% of republicans agree that raising tax on the wealthy should be part of any fiscal
in this country. we've done it in new york. this is the safest big city in the country. there are other large cities that are making real inroads against gun violence, but at the local level mayors and governors can't do it without leadership at the federal level, and, again, the passion and the comforting words from the president, they're important, but they're not nearly as important as the kind of leadership that he and congressman larson, his colleagues in congress, need to demonstrate now to get something done. >> congressman, before we go, i have to ask you, what factor do you think contributes the most to moving the ball forward on this? is it greater coverage in the media? is it more leadership from our politicians? what do you need to see to push for gun control reform in congress? >> well, clearly, clearly, it's all of the above, but most importantly, it's leadership from our elected officials. we are elected with a responsibility and a charge, and we have an obligation to speak out. if this were a terrorist attack and, frankly, i think these are domestic acts of terrorism. we would
the news? when did you find out? >> it was on the train to new york city at that point, and i was trying to check in through social media, and i found through one of my friends a rest in peace mrs. hochsprung -- laffertiy as we knew her when we were in middle school before she was married, but that's when i found out that she was one of the victims of the tragedy. >> and a vice principal in a middle school might not be the most connected to students. what was your connection to her? >> yeah. at first i was scared of her because she was intimidating. >> uh-huh. she was a real authority figure? >> yes, she was, especially for someone so young. but when i got to know her and her husband, they were loving. they just cared about each and every student. for me they pushed me to continue to work hard and focus on my studies and, you know, i think they really helped get me focused and for the next, you know, four years in high school and four years in college and two years in grad school after that. >> where do you think your education would have gone without her influence? >> well, it's tough t
pennsylvania governor ed rendell, deputy new york city mayor howard wolfson and editor of the "new york times" magazine edward lindgren. jansing and company's chris jansing joins us now. you have been on the road a lot this year to some very terrible places in the wake of some very serious american tragedies, but this one, if i dare say it, seems a little bit different. give us your sense of your take on the move -- as far as the mood on the ground and how the community is reacting m days since the tragedy. >> alex, it would be difficult to even begin to try to express the depth and the breadth of the pain that this community is feeling and will feel all weeklong. the first of a series of funerals is getting underway right now. i'll show you a page from the local paper, and there are two pages of obituaries of children. we've just learned that governor dan malloy has shown up at the funeral of little noah, 6 years old, noah posner, who has a twin and an 8-year-old sister, and there was a heartbreaking question asked in his obituary. how do you capture the essence of a 6-year-old in just a few

of new york city. it's near danbury, connecticut. the young man who police say was the shooter reportedly walked into two different classrooms at sandy hook elementary. he fired dozens of rounds. he killed 26 people. 18 children pronounced dead at the scene. six adults pronounced dead at the scene. and then two children who survived their initial wounds and were hospitalized later died in hospital. the shooter then killed himself at the school. the associated press is citing a law enforcement official moments ago saying authorities found more than the previously described two guns at the school once they responded. more firearms than the two we have previously heard about. they're not giving any further details yet. but that report just in from the associated press. the students who were not shot, none of them older than fourth graders, were escorted out of the building by police officers this morning. they were taken to a fire station next door. police officers reportedly told some of the children to keep their eyes closed until they had reached the parking lot. law enforcement officials
, obviously, any may mayor, particularly in new york city, are thinking about a city lock. we talked about this being a 9/11 situation. it's a chilling phrase, the way we responded to 9/11 having been long-term productive in terms of our resources and in terms of security. my question is to you, how do you you think about making policy in the aftermath of this, that doesn't fall prey, to making those kinds of mistakes? >> well, there be obviously, instances in which governments overreact, or react incorrectly in the wake, in the immediate wake of a national tragedy. and i think it is incumbent upon chief executives, members of the ll legislature to think thoughtfully, to take a deep breath, and gather the facts before rushing forward with a solution or another. i will say, though, with regard to these kinds of shootings and gun violence. i don't think that's our problem. >> right. i think in some respects, we have the opposite problem, when these incidents occur, you hear these voices, as you said, now's not the time to talk about what we do about this. or we don't went to politicize the t
cities and towns. in the 11th congressional district which i represent in new york city, the new york city police department reported 274 victims from 226 incidents involving gun violence. and that was in two neighborhoods in the district that i represent. the majority of these crimes were registered in just two communities. 274 victims from 226 incidents. now, fortunately, not everyone perished in these incidents, but one incident leads to many and the repercussions and trauma to those who witnessed these incidents who dooged a bullet in our community, is immeasurable. we have the authority to focus our efforts on penalties for gun trafficking and unlawful sales of firearms. we have the authority to prevent the retail sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines or clips designed for military combat use and we have the ability to register handguns and microstamp munitions to trace ownership and origin. we have the authority. we only need to have the courage to act. the newtown tragedy has highlighted a vexing issue that we as americans must address. it is imperative that we se
in this country over gun control. president obama promising once again, quote, meaningful action. new york city mayor, a staunch gun control advocate, michael bloomberg who endorsed president obama for presidency, says the issue is his now. >> the president campaigned in '08 on a gun control began, and the only legislation that the president has signed since then, one is the right to carry a gun in national parks where our kids play, and one is the right to carry guns on amtrak. i assume that's to stop the rash of train robberies which stopped back in the 1800s. >> joining me now is jonathan -- i want to put a null screen here, this is from the president of the brady center, and he said this in part, i won't read everything there, but he said in part, we genuinely believe this one is different. it's different because no decent human being can look at a tragedy like this and be outraged by the fact that it can happen in our nation and because this time we're really poised to harness that outrage and create a focused exchange. we know that the outrage and the sadness unfortunately, it will dissip
. >> yeah. people from new york city move there because it's safe, because it's removed from all the dangers of urban america. joe, i know you were there. i got there friday. you pull in, and it's been said many times over the last few days, but it's hard to overstate how quintessentially new england this place is. >> it's perfect. >> it's perfect. it's perfect. little shops. a brook that goes through the town. but then when you go over a hill just on the other side, a quarter mile away from the little village of sandy hook, the worst thing imaginable happened. i got there on friday evening. you go up to where the live television locations are, and you come upon first a firehouse which has become very familiar here. a firehouse where kids were rushed a few hundred feet away from the school. and where parent s went to see whether or not their kids were there, whether or not they were alive. there was some incredible reunions there where people were relieved to find their children. and then as we herd slard slowl by one, there was a group of 20 parents standing there who were told their kids w
this will be the fourth visit to a city following a mass shooting. let's bring in chris wallace, host of fox news sunday. >> kelly: good morning, chris. >> i have to say i've been covering presidents and in the briefing room at the white house more than 30 years and never saw a moment like that of that kind of sheer emotion and brought forward how terrible this particular one was. >> kelly: i have to agree with you, when the president spoke and even now, still grips he me emotionally, because here is the commander-in-chief now serving as a consoler in chief and he really showed raw emotion and took a minute for him to hold that back and actually move on with his statement. >> well, that's right and as he said, he was not responding as a president, but as a parent, he of course the father of two young children and i don't know that you have to have children, but if you do, and if you remember those days when you sent them off to school as six and seven year olds with all of their bright hopes and learning to read and learning to add and subtract the idea of them being struck down is particularly awful. >
